I have a semi finished basement (carpet on floor, painted block walls, ect.). I am looking to get some heat down there a few times a winter when we use it for parties. My dad has his old wood stove that he doesn't use anymore and I would like to hook it up. I know, wood is bad, its dirty, a lot of work, but the stove would be free and not used very much. Is it possible to put a stainless steel chimney up thru the wall of a underground basement. I was thinking I could put in a window well deep enough to where the pipe would go through the wall. Has anyone ever seen it done this way? I have found a used chimney in decent shape for $200 that is why I am considering this option as opposed to using chimney block.
